Literature

As of this writing in 2013, there is no monograph on the textiles of East Timor, but Fowlers's Textiles of Timor by Hamilton and Barrkman covers East Timor very well. The Oecusi (Ambenu) part of Timor-Leste, which is covered in Yeager and Jacobson's excellent Textiles of Western Timor. There is a web course on East Timor written for a general audience, Andrea K. Molnar's East Timor: An Introduction to the History, Politics and Culture of Southeast Asia's Youngest Nation which provides a good introduction. Highly recommended is The Art of Futus, a succint yet excellent introduction on the ikats of East Timor by the Alola Foundation.
